I sold a diecast car to an ebay buyer and it has been delivered to the post office where his PO box is located and the status shows "available for pickup" 4 days ago. Im surprised the buyer hasnot picked up his model car yet. I dont see any further update. Maybe USPS forgot to scan? But thats most likely impossible because they have to scan the item as "delivered" before handing it to the customer. I just dont feel at ease. Now is weekend/Saturday. If he didnot pick it up then when is he going to pick it up? Is there anything I should do? Should I send the buyer an email or just wait?
I don't know about others but when I ordered a model car, I am always excited to go pick it up just to make sure it arrived safely. What are your thoughts?

Im just anxiously cannot wait for everything to clear out(buyer got his item in the same condition before shipping and that no delays to my funds etc). Am I the only one who feels this way?

Me too. I am always anxiously waiting for my models to be arrived and always go pick it up as soon as I could but I dont get what this buyer is up to...I just want to make sure everything is ok with the model and want my fund to be available hassle free and hes taking his precious time...

So often times people who wanna stay off the grid, like if youve got a warrant and are on the run or if you faked your death and are hiding, they use PO boxes. So I figure, the guy who bought your car is in hiding or whatever he was hiding from finally caught up with him. It's the only thing that makes sense.
I'll take that one and that one and that one!

Dong worry, blieu118, some people just take their sweet time. I have experienced this too. I dont get it though, if a car is coming I cant wait to check it out.

:lol:   I just love the idea of a fugitive using PO boxes around the country to store his diecast collection in rather than have to lug them all round in his holdall or the boot of his stolen car.... :dunno: :giggle:

Worst case scenario, if they don't collect it within an allotted time period, you'll have it returned to you.

What if the buyer wanted the model and it was already returned back to me? They have to pay shipping in order for me to send it back right?

I think you worry too much Brandon ;)

It can take me a week or more to collect sometimes if I'm away on business etc. Or even just busy with work and not able to make it to the post office during business hours. Not to mention holidays etc.  I've had buyers before who have taken 1-2 weeks to collect.  So I'm sure you'll be fine, maybe just a quick email to the buyer to let them know you chcked the tracking and it's ready for them to collect.

LOL, I like your thinking :)

I already sent him an email aday ago but no reply yet. Will see how it goes. I hope he didnot change his mind after paying for it and waits for the post office to return to me so he can get his refund. Hope its not true...

I called usps's 1800 number and they told me for a po box, I wont be able to tell if the buyer picked up the package because its already been delivered to the post office where his po box at. The only way is to contact the buyer. Is this true?
